Racism Untaught

Diversity and Inclusion are emerging as prominent topics on University campus. In the last few years, multiple institutions of higher learning have outlined diversity and inclusion goals and actions. Our primary goal is to facilitate in cultivating learning environments for undergraduate and graduate students to further explore issues of race and racism. This work is focused on:

  • Critically analyzing and identifying artifacts of racialized design,
  • Shared experiences of microaggressions and implicit bias,
  • Systemic forms of racism and how we and our culture perpetuates them.

How can design professors utilize design research to critically assess anti-racist concepts and assist in identifying racialized designs within project-based learning environments?
